Description

TCP genes encode plant-specific transcription factors with a bHLH motif that allows DNA binding and protein?Cprotein interactions. Two types of TCP protein can be distinguished based on differences within their TCP domains: class I and class II. The most striking difference between these two classes is a four-amino acid deletion in the basic domain of class I relative to class II proteins. Other class-diagnostic residues for each class are also found within the helices and the loop of the TCP domain.
